The sketch for this week is a great one, and perfect to use coordinating pattern papers. The base for the card is Bazzill in a light celery green color. I then picked three pattern papers from my new papers. I stamped Gretchen and colored in her body parts, hair, socks and shoes. I then re-stamped her onto a piece of the pattern paper and cut out her dress. I cut the top part as a whole and then on my card stock image I cut her hair and lifted it up to slide the dress under. Does that make sense? It gives the appearance that her hair is laying over the dress instead of cutting the tiny sleeves and center of the dress. I left the ribbon, collar and lace edges white to pull the dots from her dress. The circle and the scallop is cut with my Nestibilities and doodled. And the "ribbon" is actually a piece of the pattern paper. The sentiment is from the Sweet Gretchen set. I doodled the edges of everything else with Sakura Glaze pens. I also highlighted Gretchen with white gel pen. Her eyes were bothering me.... they stamped out as black, so I took my blue Spica Glitter pen and added some color. She really looks to have a blue sparkle in her eyes now! I can see I am really going to love this Sweet Gretchen set and THANK YOU so much to the Friday Sketchers for the prize! Hope they like how I used her with their challenge this week!
